Plymouth Citybus continues to support Chamber initiatives | 02.04.14

Plymouth Citybus has announced its continued support of Chamber initiatives by renewing its Patronage of Plymouth Chamber of Commerce.

Starting its fourth year as a Chamber Patron, the Plymouth based transport company is further demonstrating its commitment to the city.

Plymouth Citybus was brought from the Plymouth City Council by transport giant Go-Ahead in 2009, but has continued to have a local focus, run by local management, investing heavily in the transport provision for the city. In the last 12 months alone they have invested over £4m in new vehicles, whilst increasing its passenger satisfaction to 90%.

Now operating Plymouth Citybus, Plymouth CityCoach and Plymouth Car and Commercial the company has gone from strength to strength, sitting at the heart of the local community.

Richard Stevens, Managing Director of Plymouth Citybus said: “Citybus is proud to renewing its patronage with Plymouth Chamber of Commerce. Over the last couple of years we have increased our activity within the community, be that public or business facing. As the largest public transport provider in the city, carrying over 15 million people a year it is fundamental that we continue to support the Chamber in all the good they do for the city.”

David Parlby, Chief Executive of Plymouth Chamber of Commerce said: “Plymouth Citybus has a major business presence in the city and I am delighted that they have decided to renew their support for the Chamber for a further three years. As a Patron, Plymouth Citybus not only supports us as a Chamber member, but also adds weight to our lobbying activities – helping the Chamber continue to strive for improved business conditions for Plymouth.”

Through their support of the Chamber Patrons demonstrate their commitment to the development of the economy and business in and around Plymouth. Their brands gain considerable exposure to the business community as a result of the Chamber’s extensive and widespread lobbying and representational activities. Consequently patrons are better able to influence and network with key people and organisations in the region.
